What's Reddit's Idea of Moderately or Very Infuriating? Meta

To me, massive littering in Edinburgh (or whatever's going on there,) a positive COVID test, excessive water use by celebrities and a $700 waiting room fine for someone who DIDN'T get treated are all at least moderately infuriating, possibly very infuriating, but these are examples of posts on r/mildlyinfuriating.

The fact that sub isn't called r/averagelyinfuriating or r/veryinfuriating makes me question what Reddit does consider to be moderately or very infuriating.

all big subs go downhill, it's just how it goes

mildly infuriating stuff like being in a traffic jam or wrongly opening a pudding is nothing a majority would upvote because it is considered as daily life.

As you're from the UK one would imagine that the idea of mildy annyoing meaning atrociously/horrendously would be familiar to you, at least that's how I've always understood that subreddit.
